OwnerD.M.A Services － Charlotte, NC
Defendi Mechanical & Automation"- I started this company to allow myself to contract work with other companies in need of a highly skilled CNC and Automation programmer, design consultant, or fabricator.
What does that mean exactly.
For example I spend the most of my time doing 4 and 5 axis programming and custom fixture design and implementation for companies that may not have the talent on site or may be too busy and have to outsource.
I also have a customer that needed a robotic cell designed and built to run a 24 hour machining operation.
I can customize my customer service level by having the ability to use multiple CAD/CAM software such as Mastercam, Esprit, Gibbscam or Featurecam.
I have a unique skill set and enjoy using all of them together and have always strived on diversity of my abilities to make me a more valuable asset to any company or team.

HOBBIES / INTERESTS:
BIG gear-head! Love working on cars. I have rebuilt and built all sorts of vehicles. It is a great hobby to have because it includes most of my favorite interests. I love creating something from an idea into something that excites all the senses!
I love mountain biking. I have been in the trails for about 10 years now. I love being out in nature zooming through the forest and terrain. Camping has also joined this activity quite often! I really enjoy anything outdoors.
